Annotation: Coordination among criminal justice researchers and practitioners marked the 1998 Annual Conference on Criminal Justice Research and Evaluation sponsored by the Bureau of Justice Assistance.
Abstract: Panels, workshops, and plenary sessions featured such topics as the evaluation of treatment programs, crime in Indian country, making streets safe for juveniles, evaluation frameworks, the hate crime epidemic, the development of performance measures, violence prevention, Byrne evaluation partnerships, and confirmation of effective programs. In panel discussions, the Tribal Strategies Against Violence Initiative was described as an effort to empower American Indian communities through their tribal and other institutions to implement locally designed, collaborative, and comprehensive strategies to reduce reservation crime, violence, and substance abuse. Community policing efforts in California to make streets safe for juveniles and the Cops and Kids Program in Massachusetts to keep juveniles off the streets were reported. The hate crime epidemic was considered in terms of coalition building in the community, hate crime statistics, and the impact of hate crimes on victims. Panel presentations on violence prevention concerned treatment and motivation issues, antisocial behavior, and family intervention programs. A status report on the Byrne Evaluation Partnership Program and results of State and local program evaluations were presented. Workshops focused on the evaluation of treatment programs, the development of an evaluation framework to assess effective State and local programs, and the development of useful and reliable performance measures. Plenary sessions examined the changing role of research in facilitating collaboration and research and evaluation partnerships.
